Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 12, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Mar 12, 1890 A very warm day, uncomfortably so in my studio with the window open and the fire all shut off. I painted on my brook picture but it does not please me. Mary came in the afternoon bringing Agnes, Bowyers wife--the first time she had ever been in a studio. In the evening went to the Century to see some views of the Grand canon [sic] of the Colorado thrown on a screen and a talk by Rossiter Raymond. It was very interesting but I thought the views might have been better selected artistically. They were interesting geologically. After the lecture Johnson, Pinchot, Knox and I had a talk with Prof. Raymond until after midnight. He is familiar with the West having been in charge of the geology of all the land West of the Mississippi thirty years ago.
